Trott to Faulkner, no run, full on off stump, played forward and pushed up the wicket

Australia 385/6   JP Faulkner 0* (1b)

Trott to Faulkner, no run, very full and very wide, totally ignored and it kicks out of the popping crease to slip


Trott to Faulkner, 1 run, forward on off stump, dropped into the covers and they get a rather cheap single, not the best fielding, Joe Root caught napping there


Trott to Faulkner, no run, full ball a foot wide of off stump, driven without timing to cover


Trott to Faulkner, no run, too wide to induce a stroke


Trott to Faulkner, no run, tight off stump line, pushed forward and rolled towards point

Australia 393/6   JP Faulkner 1* (6b)

Anderson to Faulkner, no run, length ball and wide of off stump, easily left


Anderson to Faulkner, no run, great length and it nips away a little, Faulkner follows it and gets beaten

Australia 394/6   JP Faulkner 1* (8b)

Broad to Faulkner, no run, full ball just outside off, Faulkner sort of plays at it and it comes off the toe of the bat to gully

Australia 397/6   JP Faulkner 1* (9b)

Woakes to Faulkner, no run, good length, around off stump, Faulkner gets in line


Woakes to Faulkner, 2 runs, pitched up a little wide and this time an open bat face squirts the ball out behind point


Woakes to Faulkner, no run, drags this a little short, outside off and no stroke


Woakes to Faulkner, no run, dug in short again, weaves out of the way comfortably enough


Woakes to Faulkner, 1 run, short of a length, outside off and Faulkner reaches out, taps it into the covers and they pick up one more

Australia 401/6   JP Faulkner 4* (14b)

Broad to Faulkner, FOUR, full and wide and chipped over cover, not really in control of that but the ball cleared the jumping Root and just about had the legs to get four


Broad to Faulkner, 1 run, gets forward outside off, drops this one into the covers for another single


Broad to Faulkner, FOUR, that's not a bad shot for a debutant, saw the short ball coming and stepped away to Federer a forearm smash over cover point for another boundary


Broad to Faulkner, FOUR, Faulkner makes room again, plays an extravagant late cut from in front of the stumps, even as a length ball followed him, the ball flowing off the face of the bat down to the unguarded third man area


Broad to Faulkner, 2 runs, hacks at another length delivery on off, gets it through point and although there's a man out there for cover they scamper back for two

Australia 417/6   JP Faulkner 19* (19b 3x4)

Woakes to Faulkner, FOUR, another four for Faulkner, who's brought his T20 form into the Test arena, backing away to leg again, Woakes followed him but the batsman clipped it firmly into the gap between fine leg and deep backward square


Woakes to Faulkner, OUT, goes hard again, top-edged ... and Trott takes a super catch running round from deep backward square! Chris Woakes has his first Test wicket, fellow debutant James Faulkner the victim - decent little cameo, playing for the team but got a bit cramped for room trying to hit across the line

JP Faulkner c Trott b Woakes 23 (28m 21b 4x4 0x6) SR: 109.52

Australia 422/7   JP Faulkner 23 (21b 4x4)
